PHOTO: Chevrolet “Electrifies” With New Gay-Friendly Car Ad

In a subtle nod to Detroit Pride, GM commissioned this ad for its hybrid Volt, which revisits the coming-out process through the eyes of a young automobile. Could this be the plot of Cars 3? Pixar, are you listening?

      Hah, I kind of like that. It’s a nice, simple, clean fun advert. Watch One Million Morons go batshit about it in 3… 2… 1…

      So was Vince Vaughan right after all – electric cars really ARE gay?

      @christopher di crapito: Pretending? GM offers full domestic partner benefits, and full protection for employees based on sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression. Hyundai, for one, isn’t so “friendly”, and neither is Porsche, according to gaywheels.com. And yes, I work for GM–just offering some facts to counter misperceptions.

      @Adam: Well of course you’ll speak in their favor–you work for them! So that pretty much makes your opinion biased and worthless. You wouldn’t by any chance be working for their PR team, would you? Nah ;)

      @christopher di crapito:

      Facts aren’t biased in either direction. He stated clearly what GM offers. Just because you seem to want to say that they are anti gay doesn’t change the fact of what he said.

      If you think they are anti-gay fine. Then list your reasons.

      @Cam: I don’t think that at all, you idiot! You do like to put your own spin on other people’s word, eh? Ok, let me re-word this so your limited intellect will understand : It’s all about money! Clear enough?

      So glad I only buy GM. Can’t wait till the Cadillac ATS comes out…so to speak. I know Michael Moore would have a fit over this, but I blame President Reagan over GM for Flint’s miseries.
